    012 Lisa Crafford: Mentorship Is Your Responsibility

    012 Lisa Crafford: Mentorship Is Your Responsibility

    In this episode, Nathan and Lisa discuss:
    How mentorship should be  Practicing reverse mentoring  What a good culture looks like  The burden of perfectionism  
    Key Takeaways:
    Mentorship doesn’t focus on the “how” but on the “why” of the job. Whether you are the mentor or the mentee, you have to come into the meeting with an agenda or else you’ll both be wasting each other’s time.  Reverse mentoring is a good way to engage younger and less experienced people so that they could share their opinions and feelings about working in the organization safely.  Create a culture where people are all connected and all enjoying spending time with each other and working together.  Free yourself from the burden of perfectionism. Be humble and honest about your mistakes, be gracious to yourself, and learn from it.   
    "Mentorship is different. It's not about learning the technical elements of your job, that's the organization’s responsibility, mentorship is the individual’s responsibility." —  Lisa Crafford

    Haith and Henry Johnson: Building Your Business with Purpose

    In this episode, Nathan, Haith and Henry discuss:
    Turning into the needs of your customers The importance of tenacity and determination Know your "why?" Building a business with purpose  
     
    Key Takeaways:
    Keep a pulse on what it is your market or clientbase needs. Don’t let yourself be stuck on what service you want to provide, but learn to implement services that clients want you to provide.  Dedicate yourself to getting it done - whatever needs to get done. Bring everything into the fight and refuse to quit. Tenacity and determination is the key.  Things almost never go the way we want it to and that’s why it’s important to know why you’re doing what you’re doing. Your purpose will be a reference point for times when you feel the lack of motivation to move forward.  Go beyond material success. Chase success with purpose and passion in mind. The meaning of your legacy lies in the lives of the people that you’ve impacted positively.   
     
    About Haith and Henry Johnson: They are a husband and wife team who own LeHost Hair and Wigs. They have been in the beauty industry for over 30 years and believe that passion, purpose and service should guide how you spend your time every day.

    Edward Morton: Leadership is Influence

    Edward Morton: Leadership is Influence

    In this episode, Nathan and Ed Morton discuss:
    The fulfillment of giving back Learning from your mistakes Importance of building trust in any organization Leadership is influence  
    Key Takeaways:
    In every step of the way, consider those that have yet to reach where you are and help them along. We have a responsibility to give to others the opportunity that we have been given.  Don’t waste your mistakes. There’s a valuable lesson to be learned in each one. Experience is one of the best teachers.  In any organization, it’s important that there is cohesiveness, trust, accountability, and equality. See that each member is as important as the other and that everyone is doing their job, including the leader.  Leadership is influence, it isn’t about telling people how to do their job, it’s about reminding them why and giving them the resources to accomplish their individual mission.   
    "None of us will accomplish our mission unless all of us believe in what we’re doing." —  Ed Morton

    Marcus Lewis: Taking Action and Building Your Dream

    Marcus Lewis: Taking Action and Building Your Dream

    In this episode, Nathan and Marcus discuss: The importance of media presence Winning at what you want Building your dream, career, or business Importance of accountability in keeping your word  
    Key Takeaways:
    Video is becoming more and more important. Think about how your authentic identity can appear in public and social media. Win at something that energizes you. Struggle will happen, so it’s better to struggle and move in a direction you want to go towards. When building your dream, build it brick by brick, focus on the day to day. Be a person of your word and always give value to people. Surround yourself with people that can get things done. When you fall short of keeping your word, own it, communicate with the person that trusted you. Be there to take responsibility for what happened and be honest.  
    "Keeping your word is probably just as important, you need people to trust you, trust your word and it means something to a lot of people. Those who have the ability to influence what you’re doing need to know that they can trust you." —  Marcus Lewis
     
    About Marcus Lewis: He is the President of Full View Productions, a full-service video production company in Detroit, Michigan.

Morning Commute Much Better!

I was introduced to this podcast by a close friend. I only have a few podcasts I listen to on a regular basis, so always looking for new quality content. These are very digestible, informative, and fun. A great addition to my morning commute. One of few I have actually subscribed to!

Exactly what I was looking for.

This podcast is perfect for me because it is short, has principle, and it has real world examples. Very intriguing show with some great guests. I look forward to hearing a lot more.
